Not A Complete Review
27 May 2006 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

I've always had a thing for 'serial-killer-murder-movies', so of course i jumped at the chance to view this one. I'm sure that it has it's qualities, but the music... holy cr... I mean, c'mon. There's this underlying synth-thingie that becomes more or less audible depending on what's being said. That may work in some cheezy horrorflick... but it really put me off this one. Sad but true.

I found myself listening more to the "crescendos" of the music rather that what was being said. So.. i cannot honestly say that I've seen the movie.

Am i being picky? mayhap, but since i could not get past the (sort of) music, there was little or no treasure for me in this one. :(
